Symptoms

IP addresses provided for VM customization in VMware are ignored. net.mgmt.addr and net.mgmt.gw properties supposed to be used when customization of IP addresses during VM setup is desired. But the addresses are ignored.

Impact

Management IP cannot be customized in VMware during the VM setup.

Conditions

VMware only. Happens in any of the ways in which address are supplied via net.mgmt.addr and net.mgmt.gw. See https://clouddocs.f5.com/cloud/public/v1/vmware/vmware_setup.html for scenario where net.mgmt.addr and net.mgmt.gw can be set. VM customization profiles still work properly.
